,000 unnecessary deaths each year in the united states by using what's called a.e.d.'s, which are automatic external defibrillators. this is now allow -- this has now allowed people to be trained to save lives. this act was very important and i'm glad that it was signed as my bill. the fifth one that i'm very proud of that president bush signed is dealing with asthma conditions. self-administration of medication was prevented in schools because they had no drugs allowed and so many children had asthma and they needed epy pen or -- epi pen or abeauty rol, and if it wasn't available they could go into asthma attack. this bill allowed that-tsh these nurses and people at schools to have this type of treatment. the sixth one is the protection of lawful commerce in arms act. it was signed by president george w. bush october 26, 2005. it basically provided civil liability action, protection for companies who are manufacturing, distributing, or imported firearms or ammunition for damages that caused cities and states was suing the manufacturer. it was nuisance suits and i'm glad president bush sign

diversity, that we have not seen before in the united states congress. interesting statistic is that among democrats in the house, white males will not be the majority any more of the democratic conference. that's the first time that has happened. we have an african-american republican appointed to the united states senate. that the first time we have had an african-american republican in the senate since 1970s, early 1980s i believe. clearly you are looking at a different group of folks in terms who've is represented up here. the problem is, they are having the same problems to deal with once they're sworn in. we have seen the swearings in going on all day, sue. >> thank you very much. congress might be be able to get much done but ty can get it done. he is at manager of the year conference and awards in chicago. ty? >> sue, i was just thinking, if you don't have to be a member of house to be speaker of house be i nominate jon stewart. >>> we are back for manager of the year awards presentation. basically golden globes, oscars, emmys of the hedge funds business. who would have turned a $1

that the president of the united states is going to nominate a defense secretary who wants to go to war with iran, they've clearly not paid attention the last few years. the reality is to find someone who makes sure our national security is safe. and issues are protected but not simply someone who wants to rattle sabers and go to war. >> no one is saying go to war, but it's the worst negotiating technique in the world to take something completely off of the table and get nothing for it. basically, what you said to the country, whose president said they would like to write israel off the face of the map that we will not respond, we will not be aggressive. >> with all due respect, i don't want to sit there and listen to lecturing about national security from republicans and administration, the previous one that led us into two wars, including one we never had to fight. that being said, let's give chuck hagel his time and chance to defend himself and his case to why he should be secretary of defense. >> there are a lot of democrats who are not ready to support him. keep that in mind. >> i'm going to

>> it's about 50 minutes. >> okay, good morning, everybody. my name is maria, and i am the united states register of copyrights and the director of the u.s. copyright office, and i'd like to say at the outstart that for me this is a very wonderful privilege because, as you may or may not know because of the long history of copyright law in the library of congress, this jefferson building is quite literally the house that copyright built. and with that, let me start by just introducing briefly the distinguished panel that we have. their bios in depth, of course, are in the program and online. but to my immediate left is tom allen who is a former congressman from maine and is presently the president and the chief executive officer of the association of american publishers. to his left is james shapiro who is a professor of english and a shakespearean scholar and author and vice president of the authors' guild. he's a professor at columbia university. thank you for coming down from new york, jim. and did you also come down from new york? >> this week i was here. >> this week you were
building materials, not only in the united states but over in asia, you'll have competition for those goods and a monetary policy that's flooding the system with currenty. >> steve sax, your best investment idea right now? >> i think sector-wise, i hate to do it, but i have to agree on tech. i think it's an area that obviously had good performance in 2012. we think that continues, although the first couple of years have been a little rough. look at the other sector you know, that have performed well late last year, financials, and then we're seeing, you know, industrials and materials pick up this year as well. consumer discretionary which we touched on is an area that i would take a look at. it's been tough to make money shorting the american consumer over the long term and the pickup in the consumer discretionary secretary ore probably continues, at least the first half of this year. >> carol, you told us what you don't like. restaurants. what do you like? >> and for how long? >> so i love the multi-level marketers that everybody else seems to hate and fair disclosure here. i've got a pos
. >>> if he is going to abide by we don't want you playing around with the united states relationship. he's going to have to be a lot more kinder and gentler to this president who won and overwhelming mandate to avoid going to war with iran. if you catch the president's speech and his address there were lines in there that made it clear that the president is going to walk the extra mile to see if he can engage iran rather than go to war with iran. >> i'm sure that he will. i'm sure that the president of the united states will have that military option still on the table. larry, the key here is that it is quite evidence that he doesn't have the strength or the political power to force the president of the united states hand when it comes to iran the way that he had it going into the primaries. it is evidence that the public will not stand on him playing politics on israel's security by undermining israel's relationship with the white house. one of the lines in the inaugural speech. let's stay on that, it is possible according to mr. obama to win the peace without having a war. that is the
.b.m. company. what did jim grant do? >> jim grant was the head of unicef, the united nations organization thinking about children. and organizations like that, you know, talk about all the right things. but what he saw was that the vaccines weren't getting out to all the kids. only 25% of the world's kids were getting vaccines. and he decided he would build a measurement system-- this is in 1980. he built one that measured facts and coverage, and he would go and embarrass the political leaders whose countries had low numbers, praisethe ones who did it well. it was cheap snuff so incredibly impactful that he got vaccination from 25% up to over 70%. he saved more lives between 19 eighty and 1990 when he did that than anyone in all of history ever has, and yet, you know, he's not -- >> rose: known by many people. >> yeah, very obscure. when i went to buy the book about him, it was completely out of print. so it's impress they have it was a measurement system along with his moral correctness that let him achieve that dramatic result. >> rose: but the interesting thing, too swhen they stopped
